Blog Post #2 (My Constitution Project Research)

Researching was kind of hard and also kind of fun. I learned that President Trump is a great example of a person who has acquired a great deal of power being the president of America. He believes in the “American Dream,” yet disregards other countries of their cultures and dreams. He had the power and now he wants it back. Another thing is it is kind of hard finding the information I want on sites. I will post again on February 5th.

Should the Electoral College be Changed?

I think the Electoral College is unfair and should be changed because it results to a president that people don’t want.

An example of this is the president that people want can win the popular vote, but still lose because he/she failed to get 270 electoral votes. This means that the losing candidate may have gained more than 50% of the ballets cast by voters. But he/she still lost because that he/she failed to gain 270 of the electoral votes. Also, there is an advantage when winning big states because you get more votes because of it.

With proven facts I found on a website, this tells me that the Electoral College isn’t as fair. I learned that the president can still lose even though the president wins the popular vote. I hope you enjoyed why I think the Electoral College isn’t that fair. Bye.

Who I hope wins the election

I want Joe Biden, Democrat, to win the election. One of the reasons why I want Joe Biden to win the election is because he wants to help the businesses to safely reopen. Because of coronavirus, millions of people lost their jobs because of it. When the businesses safely reopen, people can get their jobs back. Once they get their jobs back, they can feed their families and have the money to survive.

Another reason why I think Joe Biden should win the election is because he says that he wants to make sure all students have access to access to high quality educational opportunities from preschool through college. He also said that he wants to make tuition at public colleges and universities free for many families.

These are 2 reasons why I want Joe Biden to win the election. Hopefully, you will agree with me and vote Joe Biden for our president if your old enough. If he wins, I bet he will do what he promised to do if he was president. I hope you enjoyed this short post about me writing about why I hope Joe Biden wins. Bye.

Wish

Wish

In the book Wish by Barbara O’Connor, You should not judge a book by its cover. Here’s an example on what I am saying. When Charlie was first in the school bus riding home, She saw Howard walking his up down walk into his house. When Charlie saw it in first sight, she thought it was a very sad place. It was messy, and it probably is even messier then Charlie thinks. But when Charlie went inside the house, she saw stuff she missed out on. She saw a very nice loving family who always look after each other and help them. Then, Charlie realizes that if Howard when to her house back in Rolley, He will see how sad it is. I actually feel very sad for her when she felt lonely because that’s how I felt in kindergarten. I was staying on the grass lonely while everyone was playing games. But just like Howard, A guy came to me and became a friend of mine. I also did that to some people who looked lonely at playgrounds or sometimes camp. Anyways back to the story. Charlie was holding her mad feelings all day if like shes accepting the mad In the plane. Even thought Charlie was being mean to Howard though, he continued to be his best he can be and being nice. I hope that they eventually fine wishbone and everyone can be happy.

Jamestown and Plymouth

This is a project about the differences, similarities, and questions about Jamestown & Plymouth. This project only took a day and it was a bit easy. I would like to introduce my group members. They are Ori, Ofir, Harry, Braden, and of course myself. I put some effort in this project. I hope you will enjoy it as much a I do. Here is my Jamestown and Plymouth project:

Reading the Weather Reading the World – Project Reflextion

This reading the weather ignite was one of the funnest units I have ever done. Even though I had some difficulties I really enjoyed this ignite project. I did this ignite with my group and it was one of the best groups I have ever been in. My group members are Ofir, Gonzalo, and Amanda. When ever we were rehearsing and I forgot a line, Ofir would say the lines I forgot. He also helped me with the important events in the brain dump. Amanda did the intro and Gonzalo did the conclusion. The research was easy for important events because all I needed to do was look for famous earthquakes and then write it in my own words. We also did a script. Here is our extreme weather script:

Today We will be talking about the causes, effects measurements, and Important events of earthquakes.
Earthquakes are caused by tectonic plates meeting each other. A tectonic plate is a part of earth, it’s a big area underground. When plates meet each other it makes a fault line. The fault is a break between the plates and when the plates shift it forms an earthquake. 
There are 3 kinds of earthquakes. One is when the plates move away from each other, another is when the plates come together and the 3rd is when 2 plates slide past each other. Some earthquakes can cause tsunamis. 
Earthquakes can cause landslides, tsunamis and floods. Also there is  something called an aftershock. An aftershock is a smaller earthquake that happens after the original earthquake. There is also something called a foreshock. A foreshock is a smaller earthquake that can cause a larger earthquake.
The main earthquake is called a mainshock. A lot of times when there is an earthquake, the tectonic plates crack. That sometimes causes big cracks in the road. Did you know that sometimes when an earthquake happens buildings can crumble?
Also there are a bunch of earthquakes every day but they are a magnitude of two and below so you can’t feel them. Sometimes when there is an earthquake, it causes gas pipes to break. Then that can cause fires. There are so many ways an earthquake can be bad. 
Scientists use the Seismograph and the Richter scale to measure the strength of an earthquake. The Richter scale is determined by a device called a seismograph which has a pen hanging on a rope with a 1,000 pound weight or more. When the ground shakes the pen draws on a roll of paper and it has a motor that rotates the roll of paper for it to do it over time.
Then the Richter scale measures earthquakes from 0 to 10 It is considered that 6.0 and up are strong earthquakes. 2.0 and down is a really weak earthquake 3.0 is an earthquake that can shake the ground a little bit. An earthquake with the rating of 4.0 and 5.0 can shake the floor and knock bookcases and plates to the floor. 
A scale of 7.0 and up can cause a lot of damage to houses and buildings but from 1.0 to 2.0 it has a ten times difference. A Chinese scientist was the first person to make an instrument to calculate an earthquake his name was Zhang Heng. 
On the morning of April 18, 1906 a massive earthquake shook San francisco, California.The quake lasted less than  a minute it’s immediate impact was disastrous.

The earthquake also made several fires around the city that lasted for 3 days and destroyed nearly 500 city blocks.

China 1556 there was the deadliest earthquake in history! It killed 830,000 people and the magnitude was 8.0 to 8.3. The earthquake struck in the middle of a very populated area with a lot of poor constructed buildings and homes.

As you can see this is our script. After we did the script we did a Reading The Weather Ignite slideshow. After we did that we rehearsed. Here is our Reading the Weather Ignite:

I really hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

The Cultural Universals of the Philippines

I studied the Cultural Universals of the Philippines. I focused on the Cultural Universals of politics, social aspects, economics cultural arts and beliefs. My favorite part of this project is recording. I found picking pictures that relate to my script difficult. I hope you enjoy learning about the Cultural Universals of the Philippines!
